Police car lights

ROY — Police in Roy pulled over a driver early Tuesday morning and found he was bleeding from two gunshot wounds. 

Roy Police Detective Josh Taylor said that around 4:13 a.m. Tuesday officers pulled over a vehicle that was stopped in southbound lanes of 3500 West and was acting strange. 

Officers flashed their lights and the car pulled into an ambulance entrance at Davis Hospital's Weber Campus.

Police found the man driving had a gunshot wound in each leg, Taylor said. The inside of the car was covered in blood, Taylor said, and officers used a tourniquet in the effort to stop the bleeding. 

The man was taken to a different hospital with a trauma center for medical attention. As of Tuesday morning, Taylor said police do not know if the gunshot wounds were self-inflicted or the result of someone else shooting the man. 

The investigation is still ongoing as of Tuesday morning.
